Tutorial time – How to make trance music

September 6, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Background info: This is a video that takes an in-depth look at how I create trance music and all the instruments that make up a powerful and atmospheric sound. I’ve cropped out 15 measures from my track Spirit Within You and I go through instrument by instrument how it is played (the notes), what presets are used in Nexus2, VanGuard, and Sylenth1.

In the video I use Cubase 5, but this tutorial / howto is universal to any sequencing software and the aim is to let you know:
* Simple trance drums
* Two simple and simultaneous trance basslines
* A massively layered lead using 5 lead instruments
* Padding the sound with trance gates and pads
* Adding a trance piano

I will try to make another tutorial as well where I go through the building blocks of the entire track with intro, chorus, breakdowns, outro etc.
